Nice find

Rarely seen, though quite common apparently. Only the raft spider is bigger in the UK, they'd make most people, including me, jump if they suddenly came upon one in a cellar or cave, unexpected.
Latin - Meta menardi

European cave spider

I think that's right, I remember someone mentioned that name before, but I wasn't sure.

Thanks for the comment!
